Bury Tomorrow – Black Flame

It seems like Bury Tomorrow have been on the verge of producing something truly remarkable for some time now, which makes Black Flame a bit of a double-edged sword. For, while it perhaps constitutes the Southampton quintet’s most fully-realized effort to date, their fifth full-length also only adds to the mounting…

Heavy Blog Staff’s Top Ten Albums of 2017

Our staff has shifted quite a bit since we posted our first aggregate AOTY list back in 2014. From refocusing our content to implementing The Brooklyn Plan™ to publishing our 2017 AOTY list, our roster of contributors has fluctuated substantially in terms of numbers and genre preferences. This ebb and flow…

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Stream and Obey The New EP From Hero In Error

It’s been a long time since I’ve watched They Live but I’m sure Rowdy Roddy Piper’s character would have proudly played this loud as hell. Hero In Error, back with a refreshed lineup, new music and bigger choruses than you’ve heard anywhere this side of a Mariah Carey Xmas compilation; ready to play riffs and chew bubblegum but there’s no bubblegum so… Riffs. With their brand new EP, Obey, the band punch into the rafters of anthemic, hard hitting metal and we have it streaming for you over the jump. Obey.

Grind My Gears 2.0 – Test Launch

Since I started writing Grind My Gears, I’ve always focused on one project or band at a time. This has given me free reign to spew curse words and horrible imagery by the bucket load and I am inherently grateful to the editors and staff here for allowing me this. However, I feel like this column can step up its game. The other regular features on Heavy Blog are a cut above and such, from here on out, myself and whichever poor bastard I rope into helping me will try to match those standards. We’ll look at fresh grind compilations and releases, love letters to classic grind records and interviews and conversations with some of the cream of the modern crop. Maybe more, maybe less, I guess we’ll play it by ear (because it’s grind). Without further fanfare, please welcome your own damn self to Grind My Gears 2.0.

Hack The Interbeing’s “Enigmatic Circuits” With This Brand New Video

The Interbeing is a band that’s been making waves over the last few years. I keep seeing their name crop up in all sorts of places, like running orders for festivals or djent aficionados’ retorts to claim that djent is dead. Thus, when I was contacted to run their premiere, I was immediately intrigued; who are these oddly named bunch? Well, turns out that I should have listened to them sooner as they deal in the type djent/alternative metal for which I have a soft spot. Oh, and their new video is an absolutely delightful piece of science fiction, well produced and well written. What more do you need to know? Head on down below for your first listen!
